10 celebrity couples of 2015 that told you how life is lived

Relationship goals much? Shahid and Kimye tell you how it’s done.

Another year down and yet another year where you failed to live up to the relationship goals you set for yourself. Cast your memory back to 2014, to that good old time when resolutions were enthusiastically made and then quickly forgotten.

But despite your best efforts to not let jealousy bring you down (yet again), you tried your hardest to ape your favourite celebrities and mostly failed. This was a year of many ups and downs. Taylor Swift wrote new breakup songs, Adele finally seemed to move on from her heartbreak (wonder what her current partner has to say about that) and who can forget the numerous Bollywood shaadis?

So here we are, looking back at some of the most headline grabbing couples of 2015. Love them or hate them, but as some very annoying person once said, you cannot ignore them. So the next time you find yourself losing your crap over Kim Kardashian’s inevitable third child, look deep inside the far reaches of your soul and ask yourself: Why? And hopefully a rational, marginally sane voice will answer: Just because.

Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput

Yes, this was the year all your male friends made fun of Shahid for marrying a girl much younger than him while sneaking in secret ogles and you temporarily deluded yourself into believing that you had a shot with him - Shahid that is, not your creepy guy friend.

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard of the dog smuggling fame.

Actually, their dogs kind of stole their thunder down under for a while. But while the Hollywood power couple remained just that – a power couple, we couldn’t help but notice how Depp seems to be getting creepier with age and how having arm candy in the shape of Amber Heard was probably not the best idea.

Jennifer Aniston Justin Theroux

Rachel got married!

But enough about dubious celeb couples, here’s a genuinely heart-warming one. We are all still massively butthurt about how things ended between her and Bradolf Pittler, so seeing Rachel happy warms the cockles of our icy hearts.

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel had a baby this year.

They had a kid this year didn’t they? Wait, let’s check. Yeah, they did. And they called him Silas, which isn’t as bad as it could’ve been. For that, look no further than…

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West


Somehow Kim K and Mr West have managed to pull of the impossible. No, they haven’t sorted the Israel Palestine conflict but they have nailed the next best thing: Coming up with the perfect star kid name. Saint West. Saint effin West! You could actually be forgiven for thinking it was some kind of parody for a minute or two but no, Saint West is a real person with an equally real future R&B career.

Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello

She’s wearing something, don’t worry.

If anything, let these two be what you want to see yourself as in 5 years. Chiselled to perfection by God himself, probably with the feather of a Phoenix, nothing can put your existence into perspective better than watching a perfect woman get hitched to a perfect man.

Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik

These two broke Twitter.

Q. Will they, won’t they? Are they, are they not? Have they, have they not? Did they, did they not?

A. Who cares?

Serena Williams and Drake

Started from the bottom now he’s here.

Drake and his dodgy dancing is the reason for Serena’s great year. But also, Drake and his dodgy dancing is the reason for all her failures.

Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx

Jamie Foxx’s thetan levels are negligible.

Poor Katie Holmes. We can only imagine how weird it must’ve been living with a perpetually excited diminutive man who believes that an alien named Xenu transported humans to Earth in a ‘50s aeroplane. He needs a solid audit to sort out his thetans we say.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Sofie Hunter

Cumberbatch and Sofie Hunter are the model couple.

Frankly , we’re feeling kind of dirty for even including them with this bunch of degenerates. But we feel we need to end this on a positive note. So who better than the adorable Cumberbatch and his perfect new bride Sofie Hunter. And let’s not forget the Cumberbaby.
